Degrees and Certifications:
Hey, Friends!! I am not actually a Jacksonville native, but Jacksonville has been where I have called home for the last 12 years.
I graduated from Southwest High School (Go Stallions!) before going on to Coastal Carolina Community College for my Associate's of Arts degree and finally to University of North Carolina Wilmington to obtain my Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education.
This is my first year teaching and I could not be more excited about teaching at Southwest Elementary School! I was extremely lucky to spend time with the staff and students here throughout my journey at UNCW and fell in love with the school and atomosphere. Most of my time was spent in first grade with some amazing teachers!!
Now I am starting my career in one of my favorite grade levels, First Grade!!
When I am not at school, I am spending time with my family. My husband, Alex, and I have one mini, Riley. He will be five this year and likes to keep me on my toes!
I also have three dogs, Zoe is the oldest at 8 years old, she is the smallest of them all (she is a chiahuahua mix). Baloo is almost 3 years old and is our largest Great Dane. Finally, Akela is our Great Dane puppy, just turning a year old!
